The Lady from Shanghai

I watched Welle's classic noir, 'The Lady from Shanghai', again tonight. Why the hell he had to put on that crap Irish accent I'll never know. It could have ruined the film for me. Thankfully Rita Hayworth, looking more beautiful than you could ever think possible, balances things out nicely. I'd say Welles was doing a Sternberg on his wife were it not that they were meant to be going through some rough times right then. One of a kind movie though.
